Tournament of Roses names princesses to royal court
The Rose Queen will be selected next week from among the seven royal court princesses, chosen from a pool of about 1,000 that was narrowed to 34 finalists after a monthlong process that evaluated them on public speaking, poise, academic achievement, community involvement and personality.
The princesses are: Morgan Eliza Devaud, 18, of La Cañada High School; Stephanie Grace Hynes, 18, of Maranatha High School in Pasadena; Cynthia Megan Louie, 17, of La Salle High School in Pasadena; Kimberly Victoria Ostiller, 17, of Flintridge Preparatory School; Drew Helen Washington, 16, of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy; Hanan Bulto Worku, 17, of Pasadena High School; and Sara Nicole Zuno, 17, of Benjamin Franklin High School in Highland Park.
The Rose Parade is Jan. 2 in Pasadena.
